What is the StudyCards Viewer? 

The StudyCards™ Viewer is a calculator software application 
that you use to view electronic flash cards that were created 
using the StudyCards Creator PC software program. The 
StudyCards Viewer also tracks the answers given and displays 
results for individual cards as well as the entire stack. 

The StudyCards Creator is a PC software program that teachers 
and students use to create stacks of cards that can be viewed on 
the TI-73 or TI-83 Plus. Individual cards can contain text and 
images (bitmaps and calculator screen shots). 

You can use the StudyCards Creator or TI-GRAPH LINK™ to 
transfer stacks from the PC to the calculator. 

For detailed information on how to use the StudyCards Creator, 
see the TI-73 / TI-83 Plus StudyCards Creator user guide at 
education.ti.com/guides . 

Tl thanks the 1998-1999 Carnegie Mellon HCI project team 
members for their contributions to the development of this 
product.
